only a desperate speed freak would do a thing like that, its going to be interesting to
see if the security cameras got pictures, this doesnt seem like a one person crime.

Sounds like an inside job by a former employee or someone who knows something about the bank. The door must have pretty weak locks if the doors can be forced open.

It seems to me that there's always something happening @ those banks located on Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach!!

Should be easy enough to find 'em. Just look for the one buying crack with a handful of quarters...

Dumb criminals. They would have made off with more if they broke into an ATM. No bank keeps cash in drawers at night.

Nice alarm system! Maybe it's time to wire the perimeter doors with the silent alarm, instead of just the vault and teller drawers.

Maybe the crook had a epiphany and he saw his life was going in the wrong direction and he really needed to make some change.

Doesn't sound right. When I worked in a different branch of WF, we kept the coins in the safes overnight as well as the paper bills.

Is it safe to say the cameras didn't capture any images that would prove the burglars description? Maybe the reporter of this story should drink a coffee and wake up and report the rest of the story. Were the criminals wearing white KKK hoods?

You are absolutely right, I only deal in paper money not coins. And I am sure that you need those coins to start your Bat-Mobile.

If they were at a donut store nearby, the crime would have been interrupted! I don't know of too many Donut stores anymore, but that would have been ok-----at least the cops would be visible and accessible.
